Adobe Premiere Pro - REQUEST: IMPROVE "Close GAP" command. Fix / extend better functionality!
"Close GAP" is awesome, but works ONLY when there are NO tracks on top or below, that close the gap. It does not work if there is an adjustment layer on top, or an audio track below or any track for that matter below or above the current track (or tracks) where I cant the gap to be closed. Please fix/extend its usability by:
- Option to exclude LOCKED tracks.
- Option to CLOSE the GAP even if there are layers on top or below, simply by marking ONLY the gaps we need to be closed.
- Combination of both 1 and 2.
Please watch the attached video and screenshot for an explanation - https://goo.gl/tKULjP
2 mistakes. (When I say "layers" I mean "tracks", and when I say "close layer" I mean "lock layer", sorry, I got mixed up...

Couldn't agree more, this simple feature would be very helpful and it has still not been addressed in Premiere Pro 2020 (14.3.1)

There is no reason "close gap" shouldn't work if there are audio/video clips on OTHER tracks. Close Gap should work exclusive of any other track items; there is nothing to prevent this (sync issues, etc.).

Yes!!!! I posted my own FR for exactly this before seeing yours. This is yet another half baked feature from Adobe that needs fixing to be fully useful. Premiere Pro's management clearly has issues understanding the basics of how editing works!
Please FIX THIS and don't make us wait 10 years for the fix (like has been done with so many other things in the past). Thank you!
BTW, congrats for taking the time and initiative to make that video Alex! Seems us users care more about getting PP fixed than even Adobe does sometimes.

I would love exactly that

+1 This feature right now in Premiere seems unfinished. Close Gap command must obey active track selections, otherwise it's useless in real world.
